Our Coast ranked highly for intelligence
SHARING the global spotlight with communities from Canada, Taiwan and the US, the Coast has been recognised as one of the Top 7 Intelligent Communities of 2019.
The announcement made by the Intelligent Community Forum acknowledged communities with best practices in broadband deployment/use, workforce development, innovation, digital inclusion, sustainability and advocacy.
The Coast was the only Australian city named and is now a contender for the Intelligent Community of the Year title to be announced in New York later this year.
Mayor Mark Jamieson said the Top 7 was an achievement for the entire community and projects such as the international broadband submarine network and a 15mw solar farm.
“A long-term strategy delivered in true partnership with community, education and industry leaders over many years demonstrates that collaboration is critical for success,” he said.
Judges will visit Top 7 winners with one selected as the Intelligent Community of the Year in June.
